leftovers

I finally got around to using the leftovers from this quilt....
to make some pretty quilt blocks. When I started, I had a fuzzy idea of where I was headed. After playing with them, I know right where I'm headed....straight to the fabric store to buy more Kona. :) I can't wait to see this one come together.

Happy Monday to you!

Love the colors! Great for spring. Do you know who makes that lime green damask-looking print with the white background?

Why Not Sew? said...

Looks great! I love the purples and greens. The Kona solid looks great too. What is the name of the Kona you are using?

Victoria Paige said...

Happy Monday! Can't wait to see what it looks like when it's finished! The gray is a great choice with those colors :)

Q said...

those blocks look great, I tried to do something similar recently and stuffed mine up, so I was wondering, did you decide on your solid colour size then just start piecing till the sashing fitted? Did you plan it all on paper then go ahead? just curious about the process if you don't mind sharing :)

How did I miss that first quilt? It's wonderful and so are the leftovers. Can't wait to see what you have in mind.

Always loved blue and green together!
Fantastic squares!

Amandajean, love your new 'blue, purple, green" quilt. Isn't it amazing how certain colors can give you a happy 'high'? ... and others not. Well these are my colors. ( thanks for the fix ) I am having fun using very small scraps to create design. If you drop by, you'll see that I am definitely in a "blue" zone. http://kbartdesigns.com

Awesome! Always looking for ideas to use up leftovers :)

Tara said...

So pretty! Will try to call tomorrow. Mom and Dad were here camping this weekend, so I feel like all I did was eat! Working on my Mom's bird quilt--she loves it which makes it all worth it!

Annette said...

O luuuuuve your left overs. And I luuuuve using left overs in my projects. It gives a quilt a very special twist. Did you see Fat Quarter Shop has 20% off on Kona solids right now? But maybe you need a quicker fix than that... Looking great! :D My favorite is..... hmmm... the dotted 30's print in blue.

Local Quilt Shop: is that a place on the Monopoly game board??

Dawnfire said...

Love the use of the scraps. I adore the use of the grey too.

susiloci said...

LOVE those colors. Love.

Nell said...

I love those colours too! The spotty purple is my favourite.

Annie said...

Looking forward to seeing this one come together

Pat said...

I love the fabrics and can't wait to see the end result. I always think it is interesting that we try to get rid of scraps and then go out an buy more fabric to finish the item. Now we have mre scraps. LOL

Esch House Quilts said...

That grey looks great with those scraps!

PunkiePie (Jen) said...

I love the colors! I can't wait to see it once it's done.

Terriaw said...

this is going to be a fabulous quilt made from leftovers. You are always so good at using your leftovers, and making them into something new and fab!

Deb said...

I've seen this Kona solid used a lot lately...which one is it, is it Ash? I'm getting so I really like the Kona solids, it's very pretty and bright.

Bonnie said...

Absolutely love these! What a great idea! Can't wait to see how it all comes together.

carol said...

Can't wait to see how this will turn out. Hurry up! LOL

Thimbleanna said...

Ooooh, lookin' good CrazyMom!

Rene' said...

You can never have too much Kona can you? ;-) I like the light gray color you are using with your leftovers. Those print fabrics are too pretty not to be used again. Love where you are headed with this!

WillowBean said...

I'm LOVING your blocks. So cute and a great way to use up scraps :)

Beth said...

I'm wondering which Kona solid you're using...I really need to break down and buy one of their color cards!

Great color combinations and belated congrats on finishing your applique leaves!

Mama Said Sew said...

Normally I'm a pink kinda girl, but I'm lovin' those blues and greens! Can't wait to see the finished quilt. :)

Leslie said...

loving the colors

Katherine said...

Yum! Your leftovers look gorgeous. You're not the only one that can't wait to see this one come together. Hurry, go get that Kona.... ;o)

Clair said...

I need to figure out what to do with my leftovers. Trying to figure out what kind of scrap quilt to make.

Kekibird said...

Beautiful colors. And so simple yet eye catching. Love it!

Sewjournal said...

Great colours

Jamie Lee said...

Is that Kona Ash? I could use a whole bolt of it!

Clothed in Scarlet said...

So Amandajean, did you cave and give it to the recipient early? By the way, great take on a new use for the fabric :0)

Amy said...

Love those bright colors!

We move to our new place with land in 2 weeks. I will finally have my own studio and I can't wait to get back to quilting (and in my own space) again!

KateKwiltz said...

Ooh, I like where this is going!
Love the blues and greens together -- and is that ash? It's going to be a good one!

No matter what colors you use, they always look SO good together. Love the quilt blocks and can't wait to see it finished. What size are the blocks? You must plan your quilt patterns in your head when you are sleeping. Real pretty and colorful.
